  1. Lifestyle, Health, Fitness & Food
    Ok, a bit of background on this. I've been doing Karate since I was 8, so have always been reasonably fit. However, about 3 years ago I managed to slip a disc and really screwed myself up. While inactive I lost a load of weight (about 10 kilos!) that I've never really regained. I've just been...

  3. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Just wondering how many of you do picking exercises with a metronome. If you use one, what kind do you use? Right now I just have a metronome app on my phone. I use it with headphones and play my guitar through my amp loud enough to hear it and the metronome. Probably sounds kinda weird but...

  8. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I'm looking for some exercises, and i was wondering if anyone had any cool basic, simple piano pieces or anything that would help. Tab or standard notation is fine. Just looking for something that focuses on both bass and melody and hand/finger independence. DR, looking your way!
